Within Lidingöloppet, more than 20 different races all over Sweden are organized. During a large part of the year. For recreational exercisers and elite athletes, from the youngest to the oldest, from 1.7 to 50 km. For those who run, bike, walk or wheel.
TCS Lidingöloppet is owned and organised by the sports clubs IFK Lidingö SOK (crosscountry skiing and orienteering) and IFK Lidingö Friidrott (track & field). The profit ends up directly with these clubs and goes primarly to activities for children and youth athletes.
The Largest Cross-Country Race in the World
Since 1982, Lidingöloppet is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest cross-country race in the world with approximately 60,000 participants every year. Along with Vasaloppet/Engelbrektsloppet, Vätternrundan and Vansbrosimningen, TCS Lidingöloppet is part of the Swedish classic circuit.
Our vision is to encourage more people to exercise in our vast country – regardless of age, gender, background and condition.
Lidingöloppet means the Lidingö race, where Lidingö is the name of the island where the race is held, and the word loppet means race.
